Brooklyn Rider Tickets
A wonderfully weird classical quartet—Brooklyn Rider
Brooklyn Rider is a string quartet consisting of two violins, a viola and a cello. Although they are all classical musicians and regularly play works by classical composers, they have based most of their career on recording and performing more unusual works, including those composed by modern pop and rock artists. This makes them a very interesting quartet to watch live in concert, so when you see the chance to buy or sell Brooklyn Rider tickets on StubHub, don’t turn it down for a moment.
Success with their classical debut
Brooklyn Rider found immediate success with their very first release, entitled "Passport". It was an album of original classical music that was extremely well received and earned them a place on NPR’s list of the best classical album releases of that year. That same year they ventured into more esoteric territory when they recorded and released an album with Kayhan Kalhor the master of Kurdish traditional music and instrumentation. It’s this sort of unusual work that has attracted a diverse set of fans for the group, if fans is the right word to use. A year later saw them being asked, mind you, to collaborate on a work with Philip Glass: the avant garde musical superstar specifically chose them to record his latest compositions. It’s not hard to see why you really should get hold of Brooklyn Rider tickets at the first available opportunity if you’ve not had the good fortune of watching them yet.
Recording pop and rock with a real classical twist
The musical activity that has most fired up the imaginations of the members of Brooklyn Rider, however, is to take contemporary popular music and give it the full avant garde classical treatment. They delight in reimagining the music of some of the most iconic mainstream bands and solo artists of modern pop and rock, creating fascinatingly complex yet arresting versions of these songs. You can hear them play music by the likes of Kate Bush and Bjork on their 2016 collaboration with Anne Sofie von Otter, a feast of string treatments entitled "So Many Things". Imagine watching this sort of thing live and you’ll get the idea of what you can look forward to with Brooklyn Rider tickets. If adventurous classical music is your bag, get them on StubHub now.
